A selected set of 7-alkyl-4-oxothieno[2,3-b]pyridine-5-carboxylic acids (7) and their methyl esters (6) were prepared by cyclization of the respective 3-N-alkylamino-2-(2,5-dichloro-3-thienoyl)acrylates (5) which, in turn, are accessible via methyl 3-(2,5-dichlorothien-3-yl)-3-oxopropanoate (3). Of the present series, the N-cyclopropyl derivative (7b) exhibited the highest potency against Escherichia coli (MIc = 0.5 μg/ml).
